Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS)

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is for low-income families that are receiving Housing Choice Voucher assistance and want to become financially independent. Families that elect to participate in this program will set goals that will help them to become free of welfare assistance and become self-sufficient. They enter into a contract with the Housing Authority. This contract is geared to meet the families' need for services. It also spells out the goals and objectives, which the family must fulfill during the contract term. To enroll, the head of the household must be willing to enroll in school, a job training program, or find a job that will enable the family to become self-sufficient. Adults must seek and maintain suitable employment. The program has developed an escrow savings plan that sets aside money for the family while the family is working towards self-sufficiency. The Housing Authority will contribute money to the escrow account for the family whenever their earned income increases. For more information, please contact our Residence Services Department at 757-233-6900.

Reporting Changes in Family Composition and/or income

You must immediately report all changes in family composition and/or income in writing.  All changes must be verified by your case manager through a third party source before they can become effective  and change your rental subsidy.  Generally, receiving a verification from the third party source takes three weeks.  Increases in income are not processed until your next annual reexamination.  Decreases will become effective the first of the month following receipt of the third party verification.
